Reviews of 'Polaro!D: Part 1'

By Finley on Goodreads - 6 October 2020

Rating: 4.0 out of 5 stars

Polaro!d is a fascinating and thought-provoking collection of short poetry and provocative photography. The verses are examinations of a brief moment of life, like the candid shots created by an old polaroid camera. The photographs are unedited, containing all the imperfections of reality that are often erased from mainstream products, but they are made more beautiful in the fact that you know that you are seeing the reality of the model, not an idealized imitation of her body. Each would be beautiful pieces of art on their own, but combined, complementing and supplementing one another, they become something greater than their parts, depicting the sorts of raw moments that are often lost now in our fast lives and our search for a perfected life.

This piece is my no means for children, as it contains nude photography, but it is by no means pornographic, and is actually quite tasteful in its depiction of the human form. In the right time and place (as in, assuming you are old enough to appreciate the artistry of the photos rather than just giggling over the sight of breasts, and you are in a setting where you would not be ashamed to have someone look over your shoulder and see you looking at a nude woman), this is a great, short read, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an out-of-the-ordinary multimedia project. Also, it is part 1 of a 10 part series, so I can only imagine that there is more, equally beautiful art and photography to come!

Sexy, exotic, poetry at the same time
Reviewed in Japan on August 23, 2020
Beautiful photos and prose. This is elegant way to be lascivious and artistic. From the first page, a beautiful exotic Asian woman appears and you follow her.
For your pleasure, it's better not to tell how it goes but I'm sure you'd get to want to follow her all the way.
With the senteces, you can feel time lapsing elegantly and increase your imagination. I want to read and see the continuance.
